women of remerge – jamie

In addition to photographing the current graduates of ReMerge, this year I am also photographing some of their past grads who they are highlighting in celebration of ReMerge’s 10th anniversary. This is Jamie. She was super cool during her photo shoot. Her husband had us all cracking up the whole time. And her daughter was so sweet and beautiful!

It has been a privilege for me to get to meet these lovely women of ReMerge!

remerge april 2021 grads

I have this bad habit I am working on breaking…I tend to do really good about blogging my sessions and sharing them on social media for awhile, and then I just completely drop the ball for sometimes weeks at a time. So for the past few weeks, I haven’t shared any shoots, but I’ve kept doing new ones, so now I’m just falling behind again. Dang it! But there’s only one way to get back on track, and that’s just to pick up where I let off, and try to form a new habit of blogging sessions every (week)day!

These women each graduated from ReMerge Oklahoma in April. I did a little family session for each of them back in March. I so enjoyed meeting these lovely souls! We had a lot of fun during their sessions! Here are a few favorites from each one of their shoots.

anniversay photo shoot – erica & jerry at the wichita mountains wildlife refuge

I photographed Erica & Jerry’s wedding fifteen years ago, so Erica asked me to do an anniversary session of them at the wildlife refuge here in Oklahoma (one of my very favorite places to shoot!). Erica attended the same photography school I attended and taught at, so that’s how we met – and we’ve remained friends ever since. She is a talented photographer with a thriving business. It’s always an honor for me when other photographers hire me for a shoot!

I am so happy with the photos we got for their anniversary session! The weather was perfect that evening. Erica wore a gorgeous dress and Jerry sported a perfect cowboy hat. And of course, the scenery provided a lovely backdrop for us!

family photos – suleiman family at the plaza district, okc

My niece Laila asked me to do some photos last month of her nieces and nephew, and I convince her that she and her sis would have to be in a few photos too. We shot these at The Plaza District here in Oklahoma City. I love the vibrant colors! I also helped style this shoot, which was a lot of fun. These photos make my heart so happy!!

office headshots – CAMP

The guys at Campaign Advocacy Management Professionals hired me to do headshots for them the same day as I did the James Martin Co ladies whose photos I shared yesterday. These guys have hired me for many campaign photos for political candidates over the last several years, so it meant a lot to me for them to want me to do their personal company headshots.
